Re: Smithy

Coupled with falling off the back of the roof of a small bike shelter I was building (only a couple of feet into a bush), the Toomua situation has led me to drink GIN, I HATE gin, but the Mrs was quaffing. :smt030 We are coming on Saturday purely to say thanks to Smithy, the bloke is a throwback to ...

Re: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

Simon Cohen's concern is that the role and scope of the rugby committee is no longer fit for purpose. He's right. Simon Cohen has great respect for the skills. competencies and awareness of the Board members and would like them to play a bigger role in producing success on the field as well as off ...

Club first. 23 with his attitude would be great.
Forwards with the Julian White spirit, backs with Smithy's. Title contenders!

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 7

Total :censored: disappointment, to say the least. Saw very few really classy flashes, and a lot of not much. Such promise, such disappointment.

Re: Weekend match thread

Really enjoyed the final and as always admired Sarries’ fitness levels and skills. 12 of the squad came through their academy. Congratulations to the whole club. Watched some of them come through at Bedford both Goode and Spencer were at Cambridge - too good for the level. How many players have the...

Re: Weekend match thread

There's no reason with the right coaching why we can't be like that... We can only hope. It pains me to admit who we should emulate. Enough of hiring ex-Tigers, let’s have some ex-Sarries... Once upon a time we had a good team and a good coaching squad and matched Sarries. They went onwards and upw...

Re: London Irish: an immorality tale?

One guy expresses his beliefs inline with his religion, albeit publicly - we don’t want him at Tigers and should never play again. One guy is found not guilty in a lengthy trial, which exposes some private messages which were derogatory towards women - we don’t want him at Tigers and should never p...

Re: London Irish: an immorality tale?

fleabane I would be appalled if Tigers even thought about it. I did follow the trial in the Irish news, and was horrified by what appeared to be misogynistic behaviour of a nasty group. If it was my daughter he'd be playing for London Eunuchs :smt013

Re: Smithy

Remember us playing Ulster at the height of Trimble's powers. I think Trimble got one run all match as Smithy did an awesome 1-on-1 on him, every time he got the ball....Crunch! A truly great servant and far better than any used to credit. He DID pass the ball now and again, which is more than Danny...

Re: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

Same old excuses. If they aren't fit enough then as pro players they aren't committed enough, and judging on some of the defending this season I'd say that's a fair comment. What does anyone really expect when they sacked Cockerill, too demanding! Some of this lot don't know what a hard days work i...

Re: Ring fencing

I suggest Sky because BT are showing the Premiership games that take place at the same time as Premiership matches, Sky or terrestrial TV could show Championship games to an interested audience and that would bring in sponsorship and investment to the teams. I'd doubt Sky would necessarily want to ...

Well they just because a lot of people's relegation favourites then. Yes yes I know he was found innocent but read the facts of the case, what he did was objectively awful and he remains completely unrepentant about it. It's a stain on the reputation of a club that should know better. Given what wa...

Re: Plans for next season

Any Board that has had Digby Jones near it is not fit for purpose. Only saving grace it wasn't Sugar or Green.
